Wednesday links: Quitting your day job and questions for agents

I love regularly reading tips and advice articles in certain subjects — particularly writing and publishing. I don’t always need the information right then, but I know that it’ll eventually come in handy. Or at least, I hope it will.

I know there are a lot of other people out there who feel the same way I do, but sometimes it can be difficult to find every useful advice article that’s out there. So I thought I’d bring you a few. Here are the tips and advice articles that jumped out at me the most over the past week.

  1. 12 Pretty Decent Reasons To Quit Your Steady Job, from Red Lemon Club: If you’re a writer with a day job, you’ve probably thought about quitting said day job at one point or another. It may even be a goal you’re striving toward. That, in itself, may be a reason to take the leap. Excerpt: “Leaving a steady job is not for everyone. Working for others can stir up momentum. It gets you out of the house each day. It keeps you active and focused on solving specific problems.”
  2. What to ask an agent after you get an offer, from Janet Reid: Are you ready for that special phone call or email? If not, this may be a good starting point. Excerpt: “Perhaps you have offers from several reputable, experienced agents. What do you do then, other than rely on gut instinct?”
